Landed on my desk this morning. Newly purchased unattributed. Been scratching my head as to which of four dragon scale VAM it is. It does have the broken r in trust. It does not have the broken 'E' of E PLUR. Read each line and compared photo's on VAMworld. It does have some matching characteristics but not all as far as I can tell. Took the best picts I could. Hope the images are clear to all who view. Any help in nailing this one down greatly appreciated.

VAM36.1 has the lump in the ear, VAM36.3 has no lump. VAM36A has the die gouge from the wheat leaf to wheat stalk(clear ear) and VAM36B has the radial die break obverse E. (it's mostly about the obverse die(s) markers after confirmation of the Dragon Scale reverse die)

edit to add - welcome to the madness!!

Hi Dave--thank you for the easy breakdown of pup's on this one--if only the VAM 36.1 has the lump in the ear then we have a winner! I appreciate the help!

VAM-36B is the later die state of VAM-36.1. It (36B) has the lump in the ear and the radial die crack on the obverse. No crack would be 36.1.

edit to add - here is a link to the 36B I picked a while back. http://goccf.com/t/271101

Thanks Dave. It is VAM 36.1. Was hoping it might be the new VAM 113. Came across looking for spaghetti wings and stumbled upon this instead. The search goes on!
